Q. What about gear system of Royal Enfield Bullet 350? I am planning for a standard, should I go for it or Classic this will be my first bike.
  • I have standard Bullet 350cc (1997 model) and its gear box system is different from engine where as new engines have combine gear box and engine....in new engines if you have any problem in gearbox you have to open whole engine whereas in old engine there is a separate gearbox attached with the engine u don't need to touch the engine.....if you want to buy old model you can contact me on +91 985****329
  • The gear system on royal Enfield is similar to other sports bike on market. For first gear you push the lever downward then up comes Nutral and Up 2,3,4 and so on to fifth. Depending upon your comfort in bike you can choose between Standard and Cassic. Standard is a bit high then Classic. Classic gives you a low ride experience comparing to most of the Royal Enfield's.
  • The Gear box in Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is a slick shifting one on my personal bike........The pattern is:-1st gear is up and rest four gears down.. neutral is between 1st and 2nd gear... Bullet is a very good bike indeed........If you want real ROYAL ENFIELD feeling then you should definitely go for the Bullet.......hope your queries are solved...😄😄

Q. Actually question is not only 4 bullet 350. First, I am 6 feet with 94Kg. My priorities are Comfort, maintenance, mileage and performance. I have to drive 40-50km daily, plus long drive once in every month. As per my requirements and physique, please give me suggestions which bike may suit to me from following bikes Bullet 350, Bullet 350 ES, Classic 350, CB Shine and Honda Saluto?
  • I am 6 feet tall and near 96 kg. I have used. cb Shine for 9 years now and it is good bike for City use and travelling 70-80 km range without any troubles. Yes it struggles to carry the weight of 2 heavy passengers above 70KmpH but it's a good bike for slow rides of around 60KmpH . Now coming to Bullets, I have recently bought a Standard 350 BS6 and have to say it is a very good bike. Enough power and torque to carry me and my friend who is even heavier than me about 100 kg. Plus riding alone the bike feels effortless in carrying a near 100kg person. And the riding position is also very relaxing, you can easily adjust on the long seat, sadly it is not possible in Classic Split seat.
  • You missed out few in it , by the way iam 6.3 ft , I used yamaha fzv.2 i used it for 6 yrs it was very comfortable comparing to other bikes but pillion seat is hard , now changed to bullet 350 es BS6 , and iam not getting comfort as of yamaha , but while riding I can see difference , Remember one thing holding a bullet key on your hand is a spl thing , afcourse it's a dream of every indian to own a bullet ❤️KING IS A KING ALWAYS
  • No bike is designed for 6 footers. If you go for bullet get the ones with uncut seats like the standard models, there you will have the option of pushing back to adjust your posture. Otherwise go for the cruisers where you spread your legs forward like Harley or Triumph.

  • Bs4 tank is worst.It is quickly damaged while compares to previous model tanks.I have changed short bottel silencer but still my was not dropped below 40.I am not using showroom service and re oils.Showroom service is not suitable for my bullet 350.Because front drum break is getting jammed after serviced in showroom.

  • My most favourite bike- the new royal enfield classic 350 made a fine attempt at dissuading me from riding anything else, And it succeeded to a fair extent, Too.Classic 300 is the important bike of the company.Previously these bikes had vibrations because of old engine.Now royal enfield has done great job by swapping a new non vibrating engine.Which attracts people to purchase the bike.It looks very aggressive and stylish.

    Farhaan few weeks ago
  • Royal enfield classic 350 with some cons- the royal enfield classic 350 is overall a good bike with some cons which can be observed after riding it for some time.As compared with the prices it doesn’t have the top-end performance of the meteor 350.New footpegs foul with your legs in traffic and while parking which is annoying and the thump of the old engine is missing.
